Signs by MiCo
Michele Barden

Trained as a cartographer and physical geographer, Michele Cobban Barden has always been fascinated by ‘sense of place’. Sense of place is a hard to define but you know it when you feel it. Geography Dictionary defines it as “the intrinsic character of a place, or the meaning people give to it, but more likely a mixture of both.” In a desire to celebrate ‘place’ in her own home, Michele, an enthusiastic crafter and DIYer, designed, hand-painted and constructed her first signs. Michele’s collection of stock work continues to expand covering numerous communities and landmarks of the North Shore. Michele has lived in Swampscott since 2000 with her husband, Gary, a life-long Swampscott resident, their two children, Maggie and Zach, and 3 crazy dogs.
